the following. mitt romney has to try to expose barack obama on the issue of libya. he has to try and raise questions about barack obama's policies in the middle east, and try to implement in voters' minds perhaps this guy who takes all this creditor killing osama bin laden, though it was honorable and great in american history. what has he done there? he mismanaged it. barack obama is going to say i'm the only person up here to be commander in chief. i've dealt with it for four years. not only did i kill osama bin laden but understand the real risks. my opponents said russia is the number one geo political foe. everyone says the president has to make that argument about russia and bring up mitt romney's trip to london that didn't go so well. the most interesting thing tonight toushgs re, look at the issue of china and their currency manipulation. sthaets something mitt romney has spoken about frequently. interesting enough republicans that i've spoken to and folks close to gop leadership. they acknowledge that mitt romney's china's plan goes against things they went on the house floor. joh

in that state, 8.7% in september. the 2008 vote went to president obama with a net of 2.8% in that state. this talk about unemployment and the economy, brian crowley. how much of that is a factor in florida? guest: i don't think it was a coincidence that during the foreign policy debate, mitt romney kept bringing it back to the economy. most people turning in were not going to be paying that close attention to some of the foreign policy issues, and i don't think many \ voters go to the polls to vote based on what our decisions will be with china or cuba, for that matter. but they do vote with their pocketbooks. statewide unemployment in florida is 8.7%, but it is much higher in various pockets of florida. in some counties, as high as 12% unemployment. as we all know, that does not talk about the under-employed. the economy is still struggling in florida. we have signs of it getting better, but i heard a story that foreclosures in the state are the highest in the nation. there's a lot of economic pressure in the state. people are feeling the pain, and whoever sells the economic message be

stands. the poll tracker national average shows president obama now in the lead. getting 47.8% of the popular vote. mitt romney has 46.9% the new york times 538 blog says if the election were held today, the president would win 291 electoral votes. mitt romney would get 247. 270 are needed to win the white house. 538 says the president has a 71% chance of winning. romney has a 29% chance. and as of tonight, 7.7 million people have already voted and that includes the president who cast his own ballot today in chicago. we'll have much more on the early voting later on in the show. but we start with tonight's lead. mitt romney's mourdock mess. senate candidate richard mourdock's god intended rape comments are now threatening to undermine mitt romney's careful effort to appeal to voters as moderate mitt. desperate to hide the extreme republican positions on women's health, romney is just wishing and hoping this will all go away. but someone forgot to tell the press corps this morning in ohio. >> governor, do you wish senator mourdock would pull that ad? >> thank you. have a good
that the tactics that president obama is using talking about binders, bay nets, big bird, some of these, you know, gimmicky things are rubbing people the wrong way, in part, because they want to focus on jobs and the economy, which is this big kind of darker issue that the country is facing right now and it's worrying people a lot. and so the idea that he can talk about things like, you know, the binders comment, which is really just a play off a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate where he talked about his destroyer to hire a lot of women, that's kind -- it's not helping him, and i think that's reflected in the poll numbers, because you're seeing right now, romney is it tied or seems to have kind of a momentum, i guess, moving into the final week and that's what pollsters are saying. i think that democrats feel that this will help, particularly with women voters, because they make up the majority of the electorate, and if they can kind of put forward this argument that mitt romney wants to take away some things that are very important to them, then the

. the economy is growing 2%. stuart: i think the obama administration is going to try to spin this, as positive. 2% in the summer and better than the spring. we've got that. you look inside the number, i see a big jump in federal government spending up 9.6%, you're going to have people who say, they juiced the numbers. they knew it was the last big picture report before the election and release all of this federal money and juice it up and give awes better growth rate and you say what? >> hey, they could have done that, stuart. i don't know. but, if you take out government, we still grew 1.3-- 1.6%, which is right in line with basically what we've seen over the past three and a half years, about 2% growth. that's about it. and here is how i think we get to that 2% growth. on one side, we have these great new inventions, that nothing to do with the government. the clouds, the smart phones, the tablets, this was not built by government. this was built by, heck, steve jobs for one, but others and it's an amazing new technology, but on the other side, the counter weight, what's keeping us from grow

days. they don't want people to think they can get out of the box and undo obama care and slash spending on day one. they want time to put together a pragmatic budget. they sigh that as a priority. it's one of the reasons that paul ryan and the house budget committee chairman ended up as the vice presidential candidate. >> essentially he can't do what he promised during the primary? >> not in the first 100 days. >> jonathan, i'm going to call you j-dog. what? >> your own nickname? >> yeah. we have our own thing going. matt bey has a column in the times today how bill clinton may have hurt the obama campaign suggesting that bill clinton's advice to barack obama to paint mitt romney midway through the campaign as a severe conservative instead of sticking with the cemented narrative that mitt romney was a flip-flopper may end up hurting obama in the end. it worked for bill clinton because he was seen as a centrist. he was viewed by voters as a progressive and people see mitt romney as a flip-flopper. what you are your thoughts? >> the real reasons that barack obama has to worry abo

berry. well, after the third debate between president obama and republican nominee mitt romney, there are just 14 days left before american voters choose their next president. and according to a cbs news instant poll of uncommitted voters, president obama was a clear two-to-one victor with 53% saying he won. governor romney got 23%. 24% called it a tie. a cnn orc international poll called the debate a little closer with 48% saying obama won while 40% picked obama. for more on last night's heated foreign policy debate we go now to nbc's steve handlesman. he's in florida for us. steve, good morning. >> reporter: hi, lynn. thanks. good morning from boca raton, florida. well, the debate here last night was clearly the most combative so far. though surprising to some, not on the issue of libya. but mitt romney was able to make his larger point, his claim that america is weaker now overseas than it was four years ago. mitt romney and barack obama came to their third and final debate tied in national polls, but their tv audience seemed sure to be smaller. baseball's national league pl
, the three debates, all that came before it, it comes down to what kind of a president do you want? obama's a man of the world. he respects other countries, accepts the fact we are, we americans, part of this planet. maybe the best part. but we share the world, and we better be a smart, just, and competent citizen in it. we need to take the long view of our interests and use our influence when we can but also avoid stuff that makes the future more dangerous. romney, well, clearly he's in debt to the hawks, the neoconservatives who write the stuff we heard last night, this talk of accusing the president of iran of genocide for the things he said about israel. it's purely political stuff. that and what he said about russia being our number one enemy in the world today. all this old cold war stuff. what's beneath it? who knows. what we do know is he feels the need to wear that neocon suit. will he rip it off if elected? why would anyone think that? he spoke about wanting a peaceful planet. talk about learning a dance for the occasion. john heilemann and ron reagan join us. mitt has a tendenc
